    Clearly, this isn't a MacBook, right?

    Picture 4.png

    What is the point of that? Or is it?

    I would guess spam, and would not waste any more time worrying about it. :)

    I mean, why would somebody bother Photoshopping an Apple logo onto a PC. Surely it's easier to Google an image of an actual MacBook.

    yeah, theyve actually gone to the effort of getting the perspective to look right on the logo
    seriously...why bother!?

    Thats not an apple notebook. With the cover closed and the front facing you, the apple logo should be upside down.

    I would say its a fake.

    I get daily spam emails about the new "2008 revision of the iBook." I've yet to see a real Apple computer being offered.

    Ah, here we are...

    It would need to be way more curvaceous to pass for that.

    No, they show the late G3 design. But still, that's pretty sad.

    Apples don't come that glossy. At least, the brushed aluminum doesn't last time I checked..

    Has no one noticed the apple logo upside down? As in the wrong way. You look at the top, with the opening facing you, the apple should be upside down, and its not. ;)

    The older Apples came with the logo that way... I'm not saying it's a Genuine Apple Macintosh, but one must consider all points of the argument ;)

    That isn't a G3 either. It isn't curvy enough, nor does it have the proper rubberized center piece:

    I really think it's just a PC with an Apple logo photoshopped on top.

    I could turn my commode into an Apple too.

    I have 2 white apple stick-on's that came with my iMac.

    :confused:

    Looks like a black Nintendo DS with a photoshopped Apple logo on it.

    Unless you're looking at it from the back, in which case, glossiness aside, it looks exactly like a macbook. Zoom in a bit and you can sort of make out the air vents on the far left and right and the central hinge.

    EDIT: And I found the original image too:

    [​IMG]

    It's glossy because it has a skin on it.

    It also looks thicker because it's aspect ratio has been messed with.

    Original: 4:3

    Modified: 4.15:3

    Which explains everything.

    I'm nostalgic for that old PowerBook. Now *that* was a good looking computer. Seriously. I'm not kidding. I always liked it.
